Sony PC Speakers w iPhone Dock

Sony at its IFA show presence added a pair of 2.1-channel PC speakers, including what it claims as a first for integrating iPhones and iPods. The 60W SRS-GD50iP has its own dock in the central controller to play audio from any of the dockable Apple devices or just to keep it charged. A toggle button lets users switch between this and the regular sound output from the computer.

The speaker set is already available and, in the US, officially sells for $200.

A second system part of Sony's Muteki line, the SRS-DB500, is a conventional setup but skewed towards power: it produces 300W, half of which is generated by the subwoofer. The amp is also based on the same pure digital technology borrowed from many of Sony's other devices and allegedly improves audio quality by skipping the analog-to-digital translation process. These too are already shipping and cost $200 in the US.
